Mike Romo

Name: Mike Romo

Bio: Originally from San Francisco, Mike Romo now finds himself in Los Angeles, after spending a few years in New York acting in Off-Off (Off?) Broadway shows and learning what terms like "wind chill" and "85% humidity" meant. In addition to acting in commercials and film, Mike works in technology as a product manager (and is the host of his own corporate talk show--long story), focusing on Internet security. Though he grew up reading comics, Mike did not start reading them regularly until 2002 and has not looked back since, and has a complex relationship with the many long boxes taking over his closets. If pressed to talk about his favorite stories and creators, he would hem and haw a bit and then start throwing out names like Darwyn Cooke, Grant Morrisson, Paul Pope, Gabriel and Fabio Moon, Matt Kindt, Ed Brubaker and mention titles like Criminal, Richard Stark's Parker, 100%, All-Star Superman, Super Spy and quickly ask what you like. While he admits to being a big fan of characters like Superman, Daredevil, Batman Spider-Man and The Flash, he's more than eager to talk about non superhero books and finds himself picking more independent books than ever. A regular writer for iFanboy, he's been known to show up in a few of the podcasts and video shows as well. When not auditioning for TV and Film or writing for iFanboy, Mike works at SixFoot, a brand advisory in Marina Del Rey.

    October 5, 2017 2:41 pm hi Benjacks! Episode 3 was just crazy to me. I was kinda bummed, I thought I would get to see a bit more of the non-Federation world, but nope, all we got was the kidnapping from the shuttle...I was totally fooled by the trailer. Ars Technica had a good rundown of the episode here: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/10/were-not-on-the-enterprise-anymore-but-where-are-we/ which touched on what you were talking about...is the Captain mad? Is he evil? Is Discovery a warship?? And are we talking Midi-chlorians all of a sudden powering warp drive? Regardless, we're talking about 95 years after Enterprise, which ended with the founding of the Federation. What ST:D seems to be is the Federation either finding its way or losing its way. Clearly there are some racial tensions...but then, I dunno the bridge of the first ship (Shinzo? sorry) is like a menagerie of different races working together. Good point on the in-ship beaming, I didn't catch it. I am just all over the place on this, clearly--which, as I tried to express in the podcast, is actually a GOOD thing. I love discussing Star Trek, I just think that in this particular case, there are fundamental aspects of the show that distract for no good reason.I think so much of this could be solved--and celebrated--if it just showed a bit of "Star Trek: Nemesis" and the Enterprise flying off and fading to "100 years later" and just go from there. Michael doesn't need to be related to Spock, let's just cut the cord and set phasers to FUTURE. Regardless, I am watching it. I love Star Trek, and I will watch whatever they give me (I did finish Enterprise)...even if I dislike it (Star Trek: Into Darkness). Great discussion, thanks for listening!!! -mike
    July 9, 2013 1:15 pm Molander? I'd see that--they filmed the gas station place near my old work in LA — super awesome.
    July 4, 2013 3:55 pm yeah--that was bit embarrassing.
    July 4, 2013 3:54 pm Thanks for the nice comment on the writing, Jim! Other than, you know, rudimentary math, it was fun...like how you tied that time of history with our current integration of digital books.. have a great weekend! mike
    July 4, 2013 2:24 pm Hi MickeyRossi- Thanks for the tip. I am going to eBay immediately and will have to write another past-current review! thanks for reading! --mike
    July 4, 2013 1:30 am hey guys! I really appreciate the comments. For some reason...I dunno, this piece...clearly it began WAY too long ago. I love the typo--Conor emailed me, "We had to change the title because it's been 30 years, not 20... (sorry)" I guess I am there. Whatever--thanks for reading it. I actually have been thinking about writing it for a long time, but never thought to go on eBay. I am glad it piqued your interest -- or re-awoken memories long since forgotten. To be honest--it can be hard to encounter the comments, sometimes; you never know how things will go. But I am glad I checked in an appreciate you taking the time to write. -mike
    January 18, 2013 6:57 pm “Today will be a day long remembered. It has seen..." Well, no deaths, thank goodness, but wow--what a day. Congratulations to Ron and Paul. Thanks for this great letter, Ron, this is a huge deal in so many ways and I just know that both Image Comics and iFanboy will just get better throughout 2013 because of your contributions. Really looking forward to watching both of you shine! All the very best!!!
    January 10, 2013 12:19 am It's really kind of the most amazing news, when someone you know, like, and admire gets a chance to do something this big. Dan's going to do a great job. Can't wait to see what he does with this!
    December 4, 2012 6:16 pm This was one of two books that James Sime gave me over at Isotope Comics back in 2000 that got me back into comics. Really great to see it getting the recognition it deserves...though there really ought to be a sequel, great cast of characters.
    December 3, 2012 6:41 pm Not a good poster. Also, his face looks like he's noticed that one of the soldiers has farted.
